A slick new story trailer is now out for the total remake of Yakuza 1; Yakuza Kiwami! So great to see the hype machine starting up for Kiwami it’s awesome and at the budget price it’s a don’t miss!
SEGA’s latest restructuring has led to the creation of an entirely new concept in hopes of simply communicating their Corporate Identity.
The new identity “Amazing SEGA” promises to excite and surprise players with the quality you should expect from one of Japan’s top entertainment creators.
Current SEGA Corporate Director, and Chief Product Officer (not to mention director/creator of the Yakuza series) Toshihiro Nagoshi takes us behind the scenes in the creation of this new identity that will hopefully be a solid foundation for all SEGA brands and subsidiaries going forward. Using an in house developed headset to measure the human eye while playing SEGA games. The headset captures moments players feel excitement and joy while gaming! They then took this data and converted it to images and sounds to create a visual and audio representation of that moment that SEGA amazes the players.
It’s an amazing idea and I love the idea of capturing surprise to use in your brand. It’s a very SEGA thing to do and one of the reasons I still stand by that company today.

So Yakuza 7 will be revealed next month. No idea what’s going to happen yet so here’s my hopes for the next title in the series.
For those that missed yesterday’s SEGA live stream Nagoshi-san revealed he’ll have more news to share about the next Ryu Ga Gotoku game May 30!
No idea what will be shown but given it’s happening via a live stream I can’t help but feel like it’ll be something minor. Maybe a keyword they’ve decided to work with this time around. Or they could be showing off changes to the Dragon Engine!
You can be sure we’ll be watching and waiting for any small clue about where the series is headed next!
At last night’s Famitsu Awards 2016 (where Yakuza 6 picked up an excellence award from the magazine!) the series director and CCO of SEGA, Toshihiro Nagoshi, took to the stage to confirm the existence of the next title in the Ryu Ga Gotoku series.
